  10. exceptionally relevant chat to the issues im mulling over. credibility for crypto rests in bank senior debt security and intercreditor deeds. until there is a box to tick on the form for this, the computer will simply default to 'no' in bank credit applications. only wat to get a computer to say yes is to unplug it and steal its servers. aka clean out the vault. that was done end of may. so over to the banking lawyers. its not as if they are doing anything anyway just now… crack on…thanks guys. ott chatter from me, still, this is the nub of the issue. the head of the pin. maintain focus on this bill. god speed.

  16. fetch ai took btc as an asset raise. I can see equity raise in btc rather than fiat, but care needed as fiat debt will still be senior debt. important point. maybe someone in lead advisory corporate finance could shed light on this intercreditor posture to a hybrid fiat crypto lending

  17. I'd love to see the inter creditor agreement for Micro-Strategy's balance sheet move from usd to btc. is is senior debt, where does this sit in covenenant. great move, how is it litigated into company law and security position vis a vis, other ranking debt items.

  22. Inflation is not evenly distributed but it doesn't necessarily redistribute wealth from the poor to the rich. It can, but it doesn't always. It depends on many other variables such as how the new money is spent and tax policies etc. Sometimes inflation hits high income people harder because of the high tax bracket creep. Studies show that there's actually a negative correlation between QE and wealth inequality. For example, Japan has had the largest QE relative to GDP, yet they have some of the lowest wealth inequality in the developed world.

  23. Investment is one of the best ways to achieve financial freedom. For a beginner there are so many challenges you face. It's hard to know how to get started. Trading the forex market has really been a life changer for me. I almost gave up on crypto currency at some point not until I got a proficient broker Dr. Dugan to handle my trades. I made more profit than I could ever imagine. I'm not here to converse much but to share my testimony; I have made total returns of about 5.6BTC from an investment of just 0.95BTC. Thanks I'm really grateful especially during the lockdown. I have been able to make a great returns trading with one of the best platforms around. I discovered I made more income better than what my current job pays. I urge you to take bold step by giving the Bitcoin market a trial if you really want to make more money.
